Naked Raku at the Art League of Long Island


Instructor: 
Toni Rosenbaum
SKU: 182-OR-RakuN1
Price: $110.00

Naked raku is a variation of the raku technique in which a slip is applied to the pot before it is placed in the raku kiln. The slip cracks and breaks apart during the firing and is chipped off after to reveal a blackened crackle pattern.

In this hands on workshop, partakers should bring 6-8 even thickness bisqueware pots. The pots for Raku should be no larger than 6-8” wide and no taller than 13”. Flat pieces are acceptable, tall and narrow are the best. Use either Raku clay or stoneware with grog (not sand). Glazing will be done on site the morning of the firing.

We are hoping for fair skies but we do have outside covering and indoors with air conditioning/heat. Everyone usually brings a dish to share for lunch. Wear cotton clothing, long sleeves, long pants, a hat, covered toed shoes (no sandals). If time allows we will try alternative firing methods such as horsehair and naked Raku techniques.
